Re: Tiananmen begin again

I didn't mention US bias, I tend to think in UK terms. My point was that Kashmir is a potential, perhaps likely, nuclear flashpoint that could threaten our species, whereas Hong Kong is just yet another state massacre that won't have any outside repercussions.

I'm not saying we shouldn't be paying attention to Hong Kong - it's sad the UK is so self-diminished just now that our attention doesn't matter - I'm just saying Kashmir is far worse for the locals and potentially for us and it isn't getting media attention. Perhaps just because it doesn't have strong communications links, perhaps because it is poorer as you say. But nukes.
